A largely agricultural county, lying between the Welsh Marches in the west and the Malvern Hills to the east.
The River Wye, the fifth longest river in Britain, flows through Herefordshire from Clifford on the Welsh border, through Hereford and Ross-on-Wye, leaving the county at Symonds Yat, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Thatched and timbered houses are a feature of many towns and villages, such as Eardisland, Weobley and Ledbury.
